I love my 2017 Volt.

However, when I put something in the trunk, I often rub against the bumper/top of the trunk and I don't want it to get my clothes dirty or scratch the bumper.

Has anybody found a good bumper protector or cargo liner for the volt? I know I could use a towel or something like that to cover it but would like something better if possible.

Thanks!

I have a weathertech cargo liners for my g1, I'm sure they probably make one for the g2. I've never seen a bumper protector for the volt though. My daughter's Subaru came with one which is really useful for the dog to hop in.

I keep a moving blanket as my cargo liner. When I need a bumper protector, it's there. It readily soaks up any spills from ???? And, it acts as a noise damper against any road noise in the area.

That's a great price...There's also a product called Bumper Bib if you do a google search. I'm in Canada and they don't ship to Canada, so I found one on Ebay (said it's for a Cadillac but they're one size fits all and it fits fine in the Volt)

A cheap "bumper protector" for trunk lip-I applied wide scotch tape and works fairly well.Of course the all weather (Volt) trunk mat does save that carpet.

Thanks for all the responses.

I really liked how these liners looked : http://www.canvasback.com/index.php/products/chevy-liners/volt/chevy-volt-cargo-liners-br-2011-2014.html

But they don't offer one for the 2016 + models.

I emailed them yesterday for a 2017 and their response was - "Our product developer Suzanne is scheduled next week to get the pattern for the Volt. I can save your email and reach out to you when it is available."

They said they will be making bumper flaps too.

Some of their liners have protection for the sides and I hope they offer that too because the plastic get's easily scratched in the back.

I received the Encell folding bumper protector from Amazon and it's ok. It's "just" wide enough but definitely not long enough unless I somehow taped it to the trunk lip like Deeks mentioned. It's also not that soft so this item is going back.

Hopefully canvasback will have their liner done soon and in the meantime, I'll be using a blanket too.

I have the WeatherTech cargo liner in my 2017 Volt. Fit's like a glove.

Obermd - I routinely move a lot of music equipment and the plastic sides were getting easily scratched. I also have to lift things over the tailgate so I wanted something to cover the back.

I just ordered the Canvasback. They don't have it listed on their website but if you call, you can get it ordered. I also made sure the bumper flap was longer at about 28" as 24" is probably too short. I'll post some pics when it comes!

I use a dumpy old car blanket that is at least 20 years old. It stays folded at the back of the volt hatch. I flop it over the hatch lip when loading something big in.

I am planning to make a plywood insert with a raised under edge to make the bottom level of the hatch the same height as the back of the seats when the seat backs are flat as when the bottom of the back seats removed. That would simplify loading large things in on your own.

The present plan is to make it with hinged fold down table legs, which would normally stash under the outside under edging of this platform.

Then I can pair it as an extension to a folding card table.

That would double the flat surface I carry with me when I take the car with stuff I am trading to 'trunk sale/boot sales' (depending if you are in america or europe).

The Weathertech cargol liner with an extensible vinyl bib fits my Gen 2 Volt perfectly and works well to prevent scratches on the bumper cover. It is not New York Grade (as with the reinforced rear bumper cover flaps to prevent front license plate holders from damaging bumpers when parking) but is thick enough for loading/unloading.

I bought and installed this on my Volt today! — https://www.lamin-x.com/Chevy-Volt-12-15-Rear-Bumper-Guard-p/ch1232.htm

The center dip area on the bumper was tricky. I actually had to cut a slit so it would fit around the edges/corners properly. Not sure if this is a lack in the design of the film or not, but they have a 5-year warranty. I'm sure they will replace it for me if there are issues after it cures.
